In the Diet Calender section, is there a way to see % daily intake of fiber, carbs, protein, fat, etc? Right now it's in grams which is not helpful. I don't know if a certain # grams is good or not, but a % daily intake is super useful.

I see the Calorie Breakdown chart at the bottom, but I want thae compared to what it *should* be.

Thanks Very Happy

There is no "should be", so no. Recommendations for percentage of macronutrients are all over the map, and there really is no right way to do things. Make sure that you're getting enough protein, and that you're eating a well-balanced diet with lots of fresh vegetables and fruit, then don't sweat the rest.
